Good Time Locomotive Talks of Music, Music, and Yes Music!


Pop rock act GOOD TIME LOCOMOTIVE have a handful of tracks out and about, with all new music as well. They have plans to eventually aim towards the stage and perform, with a lot else in-store! The band talks about music for the most part, and other plans in the works.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

GTL was born out of the darkness of the covid lockdown via a musical bond forged online between James Phillips and fellow musical wanderer and frontman Hugo Leite. With a soaring passion for emotionally charged music and its intoxicating, transformative power to change human life for the better! 💪

Having never met in person, and armed with nothing other than zoom, time and a passionate drive to create vocals to match the emotional punch of the music James and Hugo found that magical musical 🧨, and the unique, eclectic and emotive sound of GTL was born! 🥳

All hail the power of the internet! 🌏

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Good time - Elation, joy, happiness 😁

Locomotive - Movement 🚄

*It is also a line from one of our songs.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in London and yet to venture out onto the live scene in a big way. We have however got a lot of bands in our circle on social media, some of which are from the London area (Misery Kids for example) who we will most definitely be moving heaven and earth to play with when we have the live line up ready to roll!

4. How would you describe your style?

I have often toyed with coming up with a unique distinction because, I know this sounds cliché, but I really don’t know a band who sounds just like us. There is always a rich emotive quality to the odd chords we use which I think is one of the reasons for this. Maybe we could be classed as ‘Emoto-pop’ …. yeah, Emoto-pop’...Lets go with that! 😁

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have 4 songs out to date with the 5th dropping on Halloween and the last one for our debut EP at Christmas. It will be called ‘Devils and Angels’. Which when you think about it, is probably the most accurate song title to be a Christmas song in the history of Christmas songs! ;)

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Always! We have a truckload of ideas, us singing things into our phones as well as a further 7 tracks after this initial 6 to put out in 2024!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have been focused almost exclusively on the writing, studio recording and promotional materials for the songs so far. We are now starting to piece together the musicians to play with us live so we can get out there and see the whites of peoples eyes at a gig. There is simply nothing like it! Bring on the touring! 💪

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

To change the course of musical history! ;) Pompous spinal tap esc jokes aside, we just want to take what we believe are some special songs that have a deep musical and emotional quality to them with a positive message out to the world and enjoy the ride….whatever that is and wherever it takes us.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Please visit our linktree for all things GTL and we look forward to you hopping aboard the locomotive!

Merch to follow soon.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The name … so they can go on about the impact we had on them to everyone they know until they annoy them so much that they too become infected….mwa ha ha ha! :)
